Create an itinerary including Noordhoek Beach
Experience one of the wildest and windiest parts of the Atlantic Cape at Noordhoek Beach, a large, and largely unspoiled coastal area. The sandy beach runs 8 km (4.9 mi) along the coast, bracketed by the vast sea and swathes of protected wetlands. Popular with horseback-riders and surfboarders, rather than sunbathers and swimmers, the beach's untamed ambience includes an old lighthouse and onshore shipwreck. Take the coastal road that looks over the beach to gain extensive views of the waves crashing down and the sands blowing into the wetlands behind.

  • On Chapman's Drive, this beach is drop dead gorgeous. A long white sand beach that is one of the most memorable and beautiful I have seen.

  • Nice wide open space that allows dogs (and any other animal I imagine). It was fine while we were there but the signs warning of muggings and 'danger' were a little off putting. The sea in December....  more

  • Absolutely exquisite venue. The beach is always magnificent, and the water often looks like something out of an overseas holiday brochure. Fantastic place to walk or bring the dogs for a run. You will often come across horse riding groups, and sometimes photoshoots
  • This long beach is absolutely stunning seen when driving south on Chapman Peak Drive! The sand is pearly white and the water deepening shades of turquoise, and I couldn’t wait to visit the beach. It was odd when I did, because we had to walk through wide shallow water spoiled by horse poo, then across a long distance of deep sand before reaching the shore. By the time we got out to the water, the sun was about to set and we had to turn around and make our way through the sand and mucky mud to the parking lot.
